I'm glad I can play a part
This seems to be a lot like the GOTM for Civilization, and seems to be a fun way to get pushed out of my comfort zone.
I looked at the settings for Round 10, and I have to say that I had quite a shock. I have never had a diplomatic victory before (I usually do conquest, or if I get lazy, influence), and have never played on a map set up quite this way. I usually go for abundant on everything
As for the nickname, I can't claim full originality. It's actually the name of a color of a solid surface counter-top product that I use at work. I would love to meet the guys that come up with the names for color
